Looking for an eye mask that was sold in Australia

I'm looking for an eye mask. I bought it in Australia several years ago. Only the surface was knitted and design was just like this [PDF] with the same color. Could you tell me where I can get it again on the internet? I really want it now!

Whose eyes are these?

In the music video for the song "Birdhouse in Your Soul," people wear masks made from an image that looks like a halftone black and white reproduction of a painting. This mask can also be seen in this image of They Might Be Giants. What painting are these eyes from?

How to "wear" a plastic Hallowe'en mask suspended in front of my face?

I picked up a hideous hard plastic fanged ghoul mask at a central California valley supermarket for .49¢. It looks like this fellow, only more colorful. I want to "be" this thing for Hallowe'en, but I don't want to spend the night with gross slimy plastic on my face, especially as there are no breathing holes. How can I easily suspend a traditional plastic mask an inch or three in front of my face? It has big eye holes and tiny side holes to hold an elastic head band, but is otherwise a solid sheet of plastic.

Nuzzle-proof sleeping mask. Difficulty level: tiny head.

I'm pretty light sensitive, so I often sleep with an eye mask if I want to be able to sleep in at all. Unfortunately, I also tend to burrow into my pillow or worm along the bed in my sleep, and my eye mask inevitably falls off in the night, removing the entire purpose of wearing one. Does an eye mask exist that will stick to my eyes even if I roll around in my sleep? [more inside]

Making your own totobobo filters?

I live in a city with lots of traffic and air pollution, and I cycle to work in heavy traffic. I started wearing a Totobobo face mask while cycling to reduce the amount of gross stuff I'm forced to breathe during my commute. Thing is, those damn little filters look the same as a cotton pad, but they are 10-20x more expensive. Has anyone tried making/DIYing their own Totobobo filters? [more inside]

Can you help me find a pdf of a printable Chewbacca mask?

Starwars.com used to have free printable star wars masks. Of course I waited last minute to pull a costume together under the assumption that I would print a Chewbacca mask like I have done in the past. Is there a way to retrieve this pdf?

Lazy Halloween filter: Where to buy a Luchador mask in chicago?

So of course I've left this to the last minute, but I've hit upon a good costume for my build: Luchador in a suit. . I've got the cheap suit covered, but I can't imagine walking around for hours in an ill-fitting luchador mask, so I'd much rather go somewhere where I can try a few on. Where can I get an authentic-ish Luchador mask in chicago that'll let me try a few on?

How do I care for this wooden art mask?

I have a nice hand carved wooden Boruca mask from Costa Rica that I got in 2011. Unfortunately, I've noticed that the wood seems to be drying out, and in some places, even cracking. I know it is authentic (e.g. not tourist crap from China) as it was bought at an indigenous reserve/cooperative and I saw them being made, but was not able to learn what kind of wood it was carved from (though likely balsa or cedar?) or get any instructions on care. It is unpainted, just solid wood. Any idea how to care for this piece of art? Does it need oiling? How would I do that?

Help me identify the origin of this African mask

I bought this African mask at a thrift shop the other day. It appears real; it has the qualities of being handmade. I've searched the Internet for an hour or so, and while I've found other masks that are similar (like this one and this one), I can't find its origin. Are there any African art experts who can help me?

Prevent Electrical Tape Designs from Peeling Back?

Have you ever heard of people using duct tape and electrical tape to create art?

What sort of store do you buy disguise makeup at?

Where does one buy disguise makeup stuff? (types of local stores) A mask like the kind from spfxmasks.com (doesn't have to be that good though) would be nice. But really I can make do with a lot less... whatever I can buy in local stores, as I need it soon. But I have no idea what type of store I would buy it at, so I could check the yellowpages and start calling around. This is in Ottawa, anyone know any specific stores here, either? In particular I need a skin colored patch to conceal some distinctive skin features. I actually want to have the disguise on by 2pm today... cut it a bit close I know but the idea did not develop until now...

Posting Anonymously

I have encountered a website that records my IP address on my messages that I post for all to see every time I post. This makes me paranoid because I feel that even though most of the people on the board are cool; someone with malicious intent may try to use that information against me. How can I post to this board anonymously? And if I can't... is there a way to "mask" my IP address of fake another one in it's place? BTW, I am using Mac OS X TIGER (if that's any help).
